We will also investigate 3d hydrogen bond networks, Which will provide highly functionalised, Well-defined macromolecules in a bottom-up approach, And study the change of macromolecular structure and chirality
Because the junctions can adopt many different geometries depending on the radius and chirality
of the nanotube, there are many more potential configurations to be modeled, he said.
There have been proposals to use the chirality
to both store and process information.
Normally the two different species of particles, identical except for their chirality
(handedness), would come with separate symmetries attached to them and their numbers would be separately conserved.
, the title of his current exhibition at the National Academy of Sciences, refers to a property of asymmetry important in several branches of mathematics and science including genetics and biochemistry.
According to Yakovlev, the small but measureable effect is due to a geometric property of the glucose molecule known as chirality
, which results in a glucose molecule absorbing light in a specific way.
It covers the historical background of macrocyclic compounds, then the fundamental properties, characteristic features, and advantages of pillararenes, such as their high yield synthesis and highly symmetrical structures, versatile functionality, conformation, planar chirality
, host-guest properties, and assembled structures, and applications to supramolecular polymers, interlocked molecules, supramolecular assemblies, hybrid materials, and biomedical applications, as well as pillararene-related macrocyclic compounds.
Additional information can be encoded in the hologram by designing and arranging the nanostructures to respond differently to the chirality
(sometimes referred to as handedness) of the polarised incident light.
This is decided by its chirality
(Ch) whose magnitude is given by (1) and its relationship with CNT diameter ([D.
In nature, chirality
(handedness) is one of the basic elements, and life phenomena are inseparable from the chirality
Efficient applications of Single Walled Carbon Nanotubes (SWCNTs) in electronic and photovoltaic devices require a selective geometry, in particular, chirality
of nanotubes, which is still a great challenge for synthetic techniques.
Philae includes experiments to test a molecule's symmetrical construction, or chirality
